    Allways make sure that it’s a good authentic site when giving out your credit card. Have a firewall like Zonealarm, get a dynamic ip addresss, which changes you raddress everytime you log on into the internet making it hard for hackers to track you. Never give out you social security card, and avoid giving out person information. For scams anything for free or what just doesn’t sound right like, Buy a stock of google for a dollar, should be avoided.Anything thats advertised on a site isn’t good and also should be ignored.

    Never click on any pop-ups..Never give your credit card number, to anyone, unless you trust there website..To make sure, that a website is secure, make sure the address starts with https…not just http..and also there will be a picture of a padlock at the bottom of your screen..Always keep your anti-virus, spy-ware, and firewall up to date..Other than that, just be careful of the websites, that you click on..Good Luck..
